Germ is out in the woods with Tyler, getting hammered and taking target practice with Alaric's crossbow. Teenaged boys, weapons and alcohol. All they need now are some girls and a car! Tyler seems pretty obviously up to something as he asks Jeremy if Alaric is acting as the Gilberts' guardian, now, but Jeremy is too up in his own head (and maybe too far in his cups) to see it. Tyler prods a little more, and then laughs when Jeremy asks him to move out of the way so he can continue with his target practice. He's a hybrid, after all. "You can't kill me unless you cut off my head or rip out my heart, and you're not going to do it with that lame ass crossbow. Go ahead; take a shot, unless you don't think that you can hit me." Germ's aim is true, but Tyler's hands are quicker. He deftly catches the arrow.
Back at the Grill, Elena tells Damon that Germ is spiraling out of control. Damon tries to chalk it up to teenaged angst, but Elena reminds Damon how much Jeremy has lost, and how much he's gone through. Damon reminds her that Jeremy hasn't quite lost everyone. "He still has you." Elena, realizing Damon is still agonizing over Stefan's betrayal, asks if he's okay. She also points out that he's day drunk. "It's not exactly your most attractive look." No, that would be the one where he was covered in bubbles. (You're welcome.) Damon stands uncomfortably close and eye-things her. "Oh. What is my most attractive look?" Elena can't hide her smile, but she tries to control the conversation. "I'm not saying you have any attractive look, I'm just saying that this is my least favorite one." Damon: "Well then, I'll see if I can make any improvements."
Klaus surprises them and Damon asks if he's really going to "do this" in such a public place. Klaus plays obtuse and says he's just at his local, for a drink with his new mate, Tony. Tony isn't just Klaus's drinking buddy, he's a hybrid. He's also the jogger who was tailing Elena. Klaus is looking for Rebekah. He and Damon spar a little with words, and then Klaus says he might settle down in Mystic Falls. He tells them they can go on living their lives, as long as he gets what he wants. Klaus says for starters, he'd like to know where Stefan is. Damon tells him that Stefan took off as soon as he betrayed them, by saving Klaus's life. Klaus tells them Stefan stole from him and he intends to get back what's his. Elena makes me smile when she says, "That sounds like a Klaus and Stefan problem," because...yeah. Klaus glares and her and starts to move in on her, in a menacing way. Damon positions himself between the two. Klaus laughs at Damon's devotion to Elena and then tells her, "Well, this is me broadening the scope, sweetheart."
